I always download straight from Nvidia, and that seems to get me the best results.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-ia32-304.60-driver.html (32-bit) http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-amd64-304.60-driver.html (64-bit)

Install by first making the file executable:

chmod +x ./NVIDIA-Linux[version]

Then hit CTRL+ALT+F1 to open a console terminal. Then type

sudo gdm stop

Then run the file by changing to its directory and running

sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux[version]

Follow the prompts, install, then restart by running

sudo poweroff -r
